Burundi isn't a frequently visited country. For starters, it is rather small, comparable in size to Rwanda, Lesotho, or Eswatini. It is also a very rural country with 85% of its residents living in remote areas that have limited infrastructure. While it boasts compelling landscapes and rich traditions, conflict has also inhibited tourism in Burundi.
While Burundi remains difficult for many people to get to, our Plant With Purpose Burundi team has been at work since 2008, supporting thriving, vibrant communities. We were recently able to send a media team on a visit to Burundi in order to help make the country a little more familiar to our community.
